What does Mailman's bin/list_lists show?
It shows my lists correctly.
What exactly is in mm_cfg.py and Defaults.py for VAR_PREFIX and
LIST_DATA_DIR. Note that if LIST_DATA_DIR is defined in Defaults.py as
os.path.join(VAR_PREFIX, 'lists'), redefining VAR_PREFIX in mm_cfg.py
will not change the location of LIST_DATA_DIR unless it is also
redefined in mm_cfg.py subsequent to the redefinition of VAR_PREFIX.
None are overridden in mm_cfg.py.
VAR_PREFIX = "/var/lib/mailman"
What happens if you do
[root at sbh16 mailman]# bin/withlist -i
No list name supplied.

Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from Mailman import mm_cfg
It shows my correct path "/var/lib/mailman/lists"
[root at sbh16 mailman]#
(the >>> lines are where you enter things. A control-D is entered on
the last line to quit)
ls -l /usr/local/mailman/lists
or whatever the output from the above was.

It shows my mailing lists. I guess the implication is that something
else is wrong. Maybe some sub-process of mailman is not running?
